Toulouse Tips and Racecourse Guide

With 50 meetings each year, Toulouse Racecourse is a busy venue situated just 4km from France’s pink city.

Hosting flat racing, jumps and trotting, Toulouse has most bases covered and also puts on strong Arabian racing contests.

Toulouse has a panoramic restaurant that is open through the week, not just on racedays. Toulouse can host up to 2000 patrons and is one of very few floodlit turf courses in Europe.

Toulouse has a strong recent track record of throwing up good fillies and mares. Liliside ran there in 2009 for Francois Rohaut before finishing first past the post in the French 1000 Guineas. She later became the dam of Japanese champion Lys Gracieux.

More recently, Watch Me won the 2018 Criterium du Languedoc and then followed up in the 2019 Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot. 

2020 Criterium du Languedoc winner Belloccio failed to make the same impression at Royal Ascot but is held in high regard by David Menuisier.

Toulouse Horse Racing Tips Today – 04/12

One bet at Toulouse this afternoon, with Peso Di Legno overpriced in the Anglo-Arabes hurdle (3.27pm).


A rare runner in this sphere for Masked Marvel, Dider Guillemin’s representative showed an above-average level of form in three starts on the flat earlier this year.  A well-regarded individual, he held some good entries on the flat this autumn, but has been kept back to go jumping and he looks the right physical for the job.


The booking of Lestrade is a positive one and the 13/2 on offer looks attractive.


3/27pm Toulouse – 1pt win Peso Di Legno @ 13/2 (most firms, 7-1 in places)
